Welcome to the profile page of Marquis Black's original fiction! If you've come here from FictionPress' sister website,, please be aware that all of the works you find here are 100% my creation, and therefore subject to intellectual property laws.

Alright! So, the nasty stuff is out of the way. On to the fun stuff, so to speak!

As should be obvious, Marquis Black is my pseudonym. I am not, in any way, part of actual nobility (though there are times when it's tempting to wish I was; particularly on pay day). Rather, I am a history and English writing high school teacher who just so happens to love writing. I began my forays on, but as I've grown older I've felt the desire to finally publish some original works and see whether I have any semblance of skill after all.

Whether you like my works or not, I hope you have a good time reading, and as always, I am more than happy to interact with my readers, so shoot me a private message either here or at my Patreon account!



For those who would rather have a quick guide as to what I'm writing, these are the genres I prefer:

Historical Military Science Fiction Fantasy (low or high)

These, on the other hand, are the genres I am less capable at and thus tend to avoid:

Horror Crime

Updating Schedule

Currently, I have one main project (The Nightingale's Song) and a companion side-project (Songs of the Nightingale). The release schedule for both should, barring any unforeseen problems (which would be duly announced), be as follows:

The Nightingale's Song -- Every Friday Songs of the Nightingale -- Every other Friday (or until the collection of one-shots has been deemed finished).

The Nightingale's Song
In a future where humanity is ascendant among the stars, the crew of the Nightingale's Song are not among the lucky few to reap those rewards. Smugglers, thieves, mercenaries...the Song is is ever ready to do the jobs no one else will, for a price. But when a lucrative job goes awry, they may find themselves facing humanity's greatest threat. [Rating due to mature language/themes]

Songs of the Nightingale reviews
The crew of the Nightingale may be infamous throughout Human space, but what most fail to realise is that they are people, too. Yes, even the alien. [Collection of One-Shots]
